Lazy Sunday

My phone rang as I was busy doing absolutely nothing (and it was awesome) Sunday afternoon.

Me: Hello

Baby Girl: Mom, what kind of snake is black and grey?

Me: Most of them,why?

BG: Well hubby just killed one, and we were wondering if it was poisonous.

Me: How big was it?

BG: Tiny, like less than a foot long.

Me: Did it have round eyes?

BG: (yelling to hubby) Did it have round eyes?  He says he thinks so.

Me: Can you take a picture and send it to me?

BG: (giggling) Yeah, that’s not going to happen. Hubby pulverized it.  I mean, it’s like in a half dozen pieces out there. 

Me: Why the overkill?

BG: Hubby said it was following him down the sidewalk and chased him into the garage.

Me: (laughing at the image this conjured up) I highly doubt that. Anyway, it’s dead now but small black snakes are usually garter snakes and are harmless.  Besides they’ll eat all those spiders and the mice you have out there.

BG: Well now I feel bad, and sad, and dammit hubby leave the snakes alone!

Me: Next time, only kill it if it’s in your house or has the triangular shape to its head, or you can hear and see the rattle.

BG: Great! Mice, spiders, snakes, dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria!!

Me: Who you gonna call?

BG: Ghostbusters! 

That, that is why Baby Girl and I get along so well.

  1. Things like this make me appreciate living in a high rise in a large metropolitan area. Until snakes manage to bypass RFID secured doors and elevators, I’m good.
